The .240 Weatherby Magnum (WEA-MAG) is a powerful rifle cartridge based on the .300 Weatherby Magnum case necked down to accept .24 caliber (6mm) bullets. Developed in 1993 by the renowned cartridge maker Roy Weatherby, this popular round delivers high velocities and excellent long range accuracy.

The .240 WEA-MAG is primarily used for hunting big game animals such as deer, elk and moose at extended ranges due to its flat trajectory and low recoil. It can also be used effectively for shooting varmints such as coyotes and foxes, making it a great all-around choice for many hunting applications.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
